In today’s American landscape, challenges both internal and external loom large, long neglected by the ruling elite. Representative Scott Perry, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus joins Kevin for a discussion on charting a path to revive the nation. Perry shares invaluable insights from his own journey, revealing how a new generation of steadfast conservatives can reignite America’s vigor—from the corridors of power to grassroots initiatives—revitalizing the country from within and beyond.

 

Representative Perry is the grandson of Colombian immigrants, and the son of a single mom who fled abuse and worked several jobs to survive and support her children. Scott and his family were on public assistance for several years during his youth. He was raised in a spartan home; his family went for several years with no electricity or plumbing. He worked as a fruit picker, mechanic, dock worker, draftsman, and licensed insurance agent among other jobs. In 1980, he joined the Army National Guard as a helicopter pilot, where he flew 44 combat missions and certified in almost every helicopter in the Army inventory. He served for almost 40 years, retiring in 2019 with the rank of Brigadier General. He was elected to Congress in 2013.
